Restaurants in Dubrovnik + The Dalmatian Coast

Restaurants in Dubrovnik and on the Dalmatian Coast are known for serving an unparalleled selection of fresh seafood dishes like squid risotto, calamari, Adriatic tuna, fresh oysters, grilled fish and juicy lobster, as well as hearty Ottoman meat dishes like roasted pork belly, Dalmatian ham, Pag lamb and beef sausage. But the city’s cosmopolitan flair means Dubrovnik and Dalmatian Coast restaurants offer plenty of fine international and fusion fare as well: French, Italian, Greek, Japanese, and more. Many also embrace the farm-to-table ethic, serving locally sourced produce; that Mediterranean staple, olives, features prominently in many dishes, as do figs, grape leaves, and local cheeses. Wines are often produced in local vineyards and pair beautifully with these heavy dishes.

A list of the best restaurants in Dubrovnik and on the Dalmatian Coast has to include Oyster and Sushi Bar Bota Šare, which is known for its fresh Ston oysters, excellent sushi and sashimi made with fresh, local fish, and a charming outdoor terrace. There's also Levanat, which overlooks the sea from a hill between Lapad Bay and Babin Kuk, famous for its prawns served with honey and sage. Taj Mahal, decorated with Ottoman oddities, serves hearty Eastern European fare like sudžukice (beef sausage), as well as vegetarian dishes like eggplant stuffed with cheese. Pelegrini, a Dalmatian Coast restaurant located in Šibenik, features an international menu that borrows from Japan and France and serves an excellent selection of Dalmatian wines.
